QUINCY, FLA., November 3, 1863.

General S. COOPER,

Adjutant and Inspector-General:

SIR: I arrived here on the 28th, and assumed on the 30th of last month. I immediately left for Lake City to visit General Finegan, commanding District of East Florida, whence I returned last evening.

I find that the business of this command has been badly administered, judging by the condition of this office. I have yet made no inspection of the troops, and will be unable to do so for some days. The staff here appears to have been organized on a strictly family basis. I do not wish to be surrounded by a clan, and therefore request authority to relieve such members of General Cobb's staff as I may authority to relieve such members of General Cobb's staff as I may think proper, especially as I can dispose with most, if not all of it, without calling upon the Government to commission other officers.

I desire an officer of the Adjutant-General's Department to be ordered to report to me for duty, it one can be spared me, who is thoroughly acquainted with the details of the office Such officer would be of great assistance to me.
